David Hudson

David Hudson is an Australian Aboriginal musician. His primary musical instrument is didgeridoo, and he also plays guitar. He plays traditional music, as well as more ambient and new age collaborations with musicians from other parts of the world.
In 2001 he collaborated with Russ Landau to produce the soundtrack for the second season of Survivor, The Australian Outback. Hudson is also a touring instrumentalist for Yanni most recently performing during the 2003-2004 Ethnicity and 2005 Yanni Live! world tours, and appears in the live concert films Tribute, and Yanni Live! The Concert Event.

David Hudson's life reflects his love and belief in Aboriginal culture. He comes from the Ewamin (oo-rah-min)/Western Yalangi (people of the north east coast of Australia) so it is natural that he makes his home in Cairns in the midst of the beautiful reef and rainforest.
David has travelled extensively throughout Australia and the World, including Europe, Asia and the USA with world renowned dance troup, "Tjapukai", which he co-founded. He promotes awareness of Aboriginal culture and tradition wherever he travels.
David has a diverse career and is internationally renowned as a musician, artist, entertainer, and presenter. His work is considered "contemporary" yet has a very definite traditional influence.

David is inspired by all the natural elements of his environment and with each work he creates, he wholeheartedly gives a part of himself and his culture.
David's music tells a lot about where he comes from and who he is. He is inspired by the simplistic things like the running water of a mountain stream , leaves falling in the rainforest and the rich cultural history of his ancestors - the indigenous people of Australia.
